Cerbalus Aravensis

This species was found in Israel seven years ago, and scientists learnt that the black and white insect is a night hunter – it jumps on its victim suddenly and makes it suffocate from poison and its deadly “hugs”. Cerbalus Aravensis lives underground and spends all day in sand dunes hiding from hot Israeli sun. With its length of 5.5 inches, this is the smallest insect from our list that still looks scary.

Its length of 5,5 inches.

Brazilian Wandering Spider

Although 5.9 inch width does not make that bug the biggest of its kind, it is venomous and dangerous. Usually, its bite does not kill a person, but causes severe pains that last long without antidot. Despite being called Brazilian, the creature can be met not in Brazil only: it comes to other countries by travelling on fruits, and thus, gets into stores. Some people claim they found a bug in their shoes.

Camel Spider

Myths claim that the insect eats people and camels, but in fact, it scares both of them. The species is also called Scorpion, because it partially looks like them. You are not scared? Then think of its size: it has 6 inches leg span. Quite big, right?

Biggest Spiders in the World: Hercules Baboon Spider

8 inch leg span makes the creature monstrous, but relax: since 1900, no one saw it. That is a rare insect. And if some pet store sellers claim to offer you these spiders, it must be cheating. And don’t mind the name, too. They don’t eat baboons or any other animals preferring  insects.

The Colombian Giant Black tarantula

This species’ leg span reached 9.1 inches, making it quite monstrous looking (scientific name is Xenethis monstrosa). It has mostly black body with brownish hairs and reddish marks, and older species have bald thorax just like many other insects.

Poecilotheria Rajaei

One of the world’s biggest spider, the bug has leg span up to 8 inches. One man in Sri Lanka found its body in 2009. It has grey and black body, and pinkish-gray mark on the abdomen. Be careful when visiting its homeland, but don’t worry about bites: spider’s poison is not dangerous for humans, but it kills birds, rodents, snakes and lizards.

Such insect likes living under rocks, in fallen trees, and human dwellings, as well. It is a rare bug, and some scientists think that it dies out because of ecological disasters.

Brazilian Salmon Pink Birdeater

The monster whose length can reach 10 inches lives in rainforests, and despite having such name, it prefers frogs, mice and lizards to birds. The creature has brown body and legs with salmon-colored hairs. It is a good hunter: the insect jumps on its prey, spits pre-digestive liquid on it, and only then eats. People should not be afraid of this bug: it bites only when being provoked, usually preferring to run from danger.

Due to its unique look and qualities, Lasiodora parahybana (this is the scientific name of the spider) is captured and kept as a pet. Owners claim this insect is quite simple to handle. This is the 3rd biggest tarantula and one of the biggest real spiders in the world.

The Huntsman Spider

This species is really huge. This spider has maximum 1 foot body size, and has leg span of 6 inches. Although the insect is originally from Asia, it is frequently met in Texas, California and Florida, travelling to the US on bananas. Although almost harmless for people, these spiders are good and fast runners, even on slippery surfaces.

The Goliath Bird-Eating Tarantula

What the biggest spider in the world looks like? This is a huge brown spider with 1 foot body length. Besides, it has huge fangs that are used to catch a prey and poison it with venom. And, as its name suggests, the spider really eats birds. Luckily, its bites are not mortal to humans (in case a person doesn’t have allergy), but may cause severe sweating and pains. Although its origin homeland is South America, this species serves as pet around the world.

Yes, all these spiders are enormous in comparison with what we usually see. But think of the fact that these are rare, and if not provoked, they will never attack.
